By Non-Traditional Students, We mean anyone with Special Needs • Veterans - Students new to a Disability • Aging Population - Students on 2nd or 3rd Career • Business or Alumni – Students off Campus • Disabled Students • Learning Impaired • Sight Impaired • Hearing Impaired • Mobility Impaired
How might this impact current Enrollments? • In California there are nearly 6,000,000 persons with disabilities over the age of 5. • 7.5% of Californians between the ages of 5-20 has a disability, nearly 20% between the ages of 21-64 has a disability, after age 65 over 40% of Californians have a disability. Yet, there are only 10,000+ students who currently receive support services for students with disabilities.
